Some few hours after she quit the All Progressives Congress, Aisha Alhassan, the former minister of women affairs, fondly known as Mama Taraba announced she has switched to United Democratic Party (UDP).
She took to Twitter to make the announcement. The same platform she earlier today announced her resignation both from President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet and withdrawal from the All Progressives Congress.
APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole said she was not cleared to run for the primary governorship ticket of the party, which takes place tomorrow, but Alhassan appeared keen in joining the race for the governorship of the state as she immediately moved to UDP.
“I have officially JOINED my next POLITICAL PARTY with 7 state Assembly Members, all @APCNigeria executives from 169 wards of Taraba State. All 16 local Government exco’s of APC All states executives of APC, we are now in UDP”.
